Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 2 MB vs 0 MB Compared to all cpus, 2 MB l3 cache is just OK
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much better performance per watt 1.95 pt/W vs 0.53 pt/W Around 3.8x better performance per watt
Much more l3 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 1 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 101.56W Around 50% lower typical power consumption
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 69.1 °C vs 55 °C More than 25% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 30.11 $/year Around 50% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 109.5 $/year Around 50% lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Sep, 2012 vs Feb, 2007 Release date over 5 years later
